Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has revealed that 1000 new free WI-Fi hotspots are being set up in Japan for the Nintendo DS. These hotspots will be free to use, and will not require any additional software or hardware. Nintendo claims it has no intention of charging for online play but third party providers may do so.
DS users will be able to choose between playing friends and strangers using the online network, which uses IGN GameSpy technology. The DS will also be able to connect with Nintendo’s new home consol the " Revolution". It’s likely more news will be available at E3.Source: Gamesindustry.biz
